Welcome to our Contra Dancing Site!

Add Our Upcoming Dances to Your Calendar



Starting with the September 12th dance, the admission costs for ages 14-17 will increase from $5 to $8 at both the River Falls Lodge and Landmark Hall dances.  This will make the same admission costs of everyone 14 and older to be $8.


Please do not park, even part way, on the highway or the circle (River Falls Road or River Falls Lodge Road) including the bridge.  Instead park fully on the grass.  We want to make the roads clear for emergency vehicles to be able to easily get through.  We also do not want to have any problems with any law officials.  If possible, car pool to save on parking space.  Thank you for your attention on this matter.
